Too big and slow to play safety, too small and weak of a tackler to play LB. Just a little faster version of Ernest Shazor, never thought he'd succeed in the NFL. He's plenty fast for college, but in the NFL a safety like him who can't hit like Roy Williams but can't cover can't make it.
In September this would not be threadworthy, but in July it is. This is really too bad as I was hoping they would be able to find a place for him somewhere. I think he is a big enough hitter to play SS, so maybe he didn't have the mental part of the game down pat, I'm not sure tbh. In a very crowded Raider backfield it was apparent someone had to go, and I would rather see him go than Stu. If worse comes to worse a long career in the CFL as a LB awaits him....

The fact that he was cut so early is what really intrigues me. It makes me think there was a personal problem with coaches/players or his injury was really a lot worse than everyone thought. There's also that slight possibility that he was caught doing steroids (needing to bulk up for LB and all) which would explain why both he and Cooper were cut at the same time.
